Production will be limited to just 16 pieces, each among the last ever Bentleys to be powered by the company’s W12 engine.

Created by Mulliner, Bentley’s in house bespoke division and the longest standing coachbuilder in the world, the Batur Convertible follows the exquisitely hand-crafted Bacalar barchetta and Batur coupe.

Beyond the attractive items that make the car one to buy by connoisseurs, the Batur Convertible raises our attention thanks to the elements that involve AM at the manufacturing level.

Each car is equipped with the company’s W12 engine, a revised intake system that comes along upgraded turbochargers, new intercoolers and extensive recalibration. The latter enables 750 PS and 1,000 Nm of torque, while delivering exceptional performance for this pinnacle grand tourer. This development of the engine is in celebration of its achievements over 20 years, over which time it has been developed to produce nearly 40% more power while fuel economy has improved by 25%. The W12 is paired with Bentley’s eight-speed double-clutch transmission, and a sports exhaust to provide a soundtrack in keeping with the level of performance. The entire exhaust system is in titanium, while the finishers are 3D printed in titanium.

Other elements of the car can be customized in color and surface finish and will remain optional for buyers.

Customers will be able to specify the colour and finish of practically every surface of the Batur Convertible, to create a car as individual as they are. In the cabin for instance, the option of 3D printed rose gold includes key driver touch points, such as the Bentley Drive Mode Selector, encircling the start/stop button and used to change chassis modes. The centrepiece of an exquisite cabin, the dial complements the design of the front grille. Rose gold can also applied to Bentley’s iconic Organ Stop vent controls in the dashboard, as well as a rose gold insert marker on the steering wheel itself.
